“Charity and Truth: Challenged to Christian Unity” is a free event co-sponsored by Parrhesia and the St. James Project. We’ll be there to live stream the talk directly to the St. James Project website. A printable flyer with further details is available on the right sidebar. Come join us and bring a friend.
Most of us know that John Paul II issued an apology to Jews for past sins of the Church during the Jubilee Year in 2000 when he paid his respects at the Western Wall. Many of us also know that he presided over World Day of Prayer for Peace services in Assisi, Italy which involved multiple religions. How can such gestures be interpreted as acts of charity in truth? Msgr. Frank Lane hopes to show us this Wednesday, October 22, at 7 pm at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.
Msgr. Lane has a doctorate from The Ohio State University in European History and has taught on the faculties of, among others, the Pontifical College Josephinum, St. Bonaventure University, and the Athenaeum of Ohio where he currently serves as Spiritual Director. He has given numerous talks and retreats over his career, is a very well-regarded homilist (full disclosure: he’s giving the homily at my nuptial Mass in December), and is currently working on a book on St. Bonaventure while teaching a course on Franciscan Christology.
